NatureBoy and I had a good time at Northeast 2009. Here are some cell-phone pictures.
We were greeted by the non-nonsense presence of the 501st Legion – Vader’s Fist. Trooper TK-3220 was an imposing sight (and very shiny).
On Saturday afternoon, we played Wiz-War with GM Earl; the same great guy who introduced us to the game at Carnage last November. Here are some better shots of his game.
The Magic cards have Wiz-War game card labels adhered to them. Earl decided to use some of his many “commons” as the stock material. He even color-coordinated the Magic cards with the Wiz-War card colors. Very nice.
On Sunday, we played a couple games from the lending library. I can’t remember what this one was called, but I think it was from ThinkFun (Binary Arts). Two players, playing land or water, take turns laying cards to make paths that connect the sides of the garden. It simple, and fun in a non-taxing way.
This game was somewhat more involved. In fact, it was the best tic-tac-toe variation I’ve tried. And the game was beautiful. On a player’s turn, she places a marble and rotates a wooden square 90°.
And the final game we played was a homebrew Transformers RPG based on D&D 4e. The game consisted mostly of three combat scenes, with seven players and a GM. Some fun; some tedious. But the GM was good and the rules were well-thought-out. And we played using transformers! 🙂
